What is CT-Scan?

A computerized tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays and a computer to create detailed images of the inside of the body. CT scans are sometimes referred to as CAT scans or computed tomography scans.

 

Is it safe?

CT scans are quick, painless and generally safe. However, you will be exposed to small doses of X-ray radiation that will vary depending on how much of your body is scanned. The benefits and risks of having a CT scan will always be evaluated before it is recommended by your clinical team.
Many CT scans also involve injecting a dye (known as a ‘contrast dye’) into a vein to increase clarity of body tissues on the scan. As with all injections, there is a small risk you could have an allergic reaction to the contrast dye used but our expert medical team on site is well equipped to support you if this happens.

Typical Areas scanned include:

  • Head
  • Spine
  • Extremities
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Pelvis
